## Permutation based 2-sample mean test for (hyper-)spherical data

### Description

Permutation based 2-sample mean test for (hyper-)spherical data.

### Usage

``````hcf.perm(x1, x2, B = 999)
lr.perm(x1, x2, B = 999)
hclr.perm(x1, x2, B = 999)
embed.perm(x1, x2, B = 999)
het.perm(x1, x2, B = 999)
``````

### Arguments

 `x1` A matrix with the data in Euclidean coordinates, i.e. unit vectors. `x2` A matrix with the data in Euclidean coordinates, i.e. unit vectors. `B` The number of permutations to perform.

### Details

The high concentration (hcf.perm), log-likelihood ratio (lr.perm), high concentration log-likelihood ratio (hclr.perm), embedding approach (embed.perm) or the non equal concentration parameters approach (het.perm) is used.

### Value

This is an "htest"class object. Thus it returns a list including:

 `statistic` The test statistic value. `parameter` The degrees of freedom of the test. Since these are permutation based tests this is "NA". `p.value` The p-value of the test. `alternative` A character with the alternative hypothesis. `method` A character with the test used. `data.name` A character vector with two elements.

ina <- rep(1:2, each = 30)
x1 <- x[ina == 1, ]
x2 <- x[ina == 2, ]
hcf.perm(x1, x2)
